Joe Wallace Chicago Zine graphic novel

The StudioLab Blog

Joe Wallace Chicago Zine graphic novelby Joe Wallace

I’m not the only person who creates art, music, zines and graphic novel work at StudioLab–I have art partners who I collaborate with and do group shows with. But I’m probably the most passionate of my art partners when it comes to blogging and writing about my experiences as an artist and full-time creative type.

With that in mind, so begins the StudioLab blog. I figure that when my art partners feel moved to write about something in this space, I’ll leave it up to them to speak about their individual experiences, impressions, and opinions. I’m addressing things from my perspective only–when you read the byline on the blog, that’s the experience being represented. In other words, I won’t presume to speak for them, and I don’t think they would presume to speak for me either…

I tend to write a great deal, so this space can get a bit ranty at times in the interest of getting details out, covering lots of bases, and not leaving out credit where credit is due. Keep your eyes peeled on this space, there’s much discussion about art and the creative life in general to come.

Joe Wallace is a fulltime freelance creative professional. He writes, blogs, manages social media, and creates mixed-media and transmedia artwork at StudioLab, which he runs out of the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago Illinois. Contact him at jwallace242@gmail dot net.

StudioLab Moves Into Bridgeport Arts Center

StudioLab is a multi-media art studio that will soon open its doors in the Bridgeport Arts Center. We are sound designers, videographers and editors and mixed-media artists inspired by early industrial music, sci-fi futurism, sexy photography, and William Burroughs.

Joe Wallace, Patty Gonzalez, and Esmeralda Trujillo work with sound, video, painting and other visual art to create unique and innovative art for installations, live shows, and motion pictures. We are based in Chicago but travel regularly to perform, display our work and gather sounds for our sound effects and soundscape work.
